Preparation:

  • The water supply shut off valves must be turned off- see article How to Turn Off the Water Supply to the Faucet.
  • Recommended Tools: Needle Nose Pliers
  • The following instructions assume the handle and associated handle pieces have been removed. For additional details, visit solutions.moen.com and select the type you are repairing.

Disassembly:

1. Remove the upper bearing washer and o-ring (#B). 

Caution: The upper bearing washer (#B) will need to be reused, be careful not to damage the the part. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and slightly pull back the prongs at the top of the upper bearing washer (#B) until it is loose, and lift it from the faucet. 

 

Assembly:

The upper bearing washer (#B) is designed to hold the faucet receptor in place. It is plastic, surrounded with a black rubber o-ring (E) and designed with a split in it for easy installation. Be careful not to expand or stretch the upper bearing washer (#1) or O-ring (E) out of shape.

  • If you received a new 170206 service kit, slide the o-ring (#E) into the grove on the upper bearing washer (See Diagram 1).
  • Carefully slide the upper bearing washer (#B) down the valve body so the split lines up with the vertical rib (A). Be careful not to expand or stretch the upper bearing washer (#B) out of shape. The bottom of the upper bearing washer (#B) tucks into the top of the receptor which will allow the prongs (B) to tuck under the valve overhang (C) (See Diagram 2). The receptor should not pull up if the upper bearing washer (#2) was installed properly. To test for movement, gently pull up on the receptor.
